Vintage Postcard Crafting


My family has amazing postcards that are over 100 years old that belonged to my Great Aunt Myrtle in Iowa.  I made this charming changeable vase with digital images of vintage postcards - here's how I did it:
 
Cha, Cha, Changeable Vase
If you don't have your own vintage postcards, digital images are available at http://www.etsy.com/shop/JoanMartinFee - two different sets of three are available for ALL your crafting projects - they're scalable too so you can make them just the right size for your projects. You also receive an inspirational instruction sheet filled with holiday decorating and gift ideas.

Layer red and green paper behind image cutting out with decorative edge scissors. Glue together with glue stick. Glue to piece of red paper that fits in vase. Place smaller vase or jar inside larger vase. When the holidays are over, remove the Santa image and replace it with an everyday image.
